"If you are not feeling well,
 if you have not slept, chocolate
 will revive you. But you have
 no chocolate! I think of  that
 again and again. My dear,
 how will you ever manage?"...

~ Marquise de Sevigne

...You can always make a
batch of chocolate pudding,
and spoon it in a cream puff,
then I wouldn't have to worry
so about you!

Chocolate Pudding

  • 1/3 cup sugar

  • 1/4 cup cornstarch

  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa

  • 1 ounce melted semi-sweet chocolate

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups Milk [I used Almond Milk]

  • .   1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • Whisk together sugar, cornstarch, cocoa,melted chocolate and salt in a medium saucepan. Slowly whisk in Pure Almond. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, whisking constantly. Reduce heat to low and simmer, whisking occasionally, until mixture thickens, about 4-5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk in extract(s) and butter. Pour into 1 large bowl or 8 small serving bowls and refrigerate for at least an hour, until thoroughly chilled
